This morning I have finally decided that I am desperate for a haircut. I was going to attempt to take Little Guy to the salon with me. Instead I have gone against my core instinct and actually asked for some help from a friend. She has agreed to come with me and watch Little Guy. What a relief!
As an expat this is one of the issues I deal with, haircuts. Firstly I don't have any relatives nearby to help out with the odd afternoon of childcare. As you know my husband is almost never home and certainly not in retail hours. So I am always in a quandary about what to do with my kids.
Once I arrive at the salon I usually defer to the stylists judgment since it's hard to explain what I want (in Japanese). I am so out of touch with styles anyway I have no idea. Lastly I have very very very fine hair which confounds the Japanese hair dressers so I don't get the best cut. Therefore I am going to the cheap and nasty salon where you don't need an appointment.
Wish me luck!
